Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans we rely on donations from supporters like you to continue this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $25 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31! Thanks for your continuing partnership in making the world a fairer place.

In service, Premal Shah, President,

Amany, who appears in the picture, is a 19 year-old single young woman. Her father is a worker and her elder brother is employed and both earn low salaries, which is not enough to cover the family's needs and to pay the education costs. Amany lives in Jenin city which is an agricultural city and famous for vegetables, fruits and olive crops.
Amany is studying at the university, specializing in Arabic Literature. Amany wants to complete her studies by paying the university fees, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the university fees. This will ensure a better future for Amany and improve the family's living conditions.
